Like his fellow lunarnauts--otherwise known as Moonies--living on Moon Base Alpha, twelve-year-old Dashiell Gibson is famous the world over for being one of the first humans to live on the moon. And he's bored out of his mind. Kids aren't allowed on the lunar surface, meaning they're trapped inside the tiny moon base with next to nothing to occupy their time--and the only other kid Dash's age spends all his time hooked into virtual reality games. Then Moon Base Alpha's top scientist turns up dead. Dash senses there's foul play afoot, but no one believes him. Everyone agrees Dr. Holtz went onto the lunar surface without his helmet properly affixed, simple as that. But Dr. Holtz was on the verge of an important new discovery, Dash finds out, and it's a secret that could change everything for the Moonies--a secret someone just might kill to keep.

OMG!!! this book is perfect for people that like funny, suspenceful, and can't-put-it-down type of books. My teacher read it to us, and everyone was hooked. This is an amazing book. 5 stars easily. There are 3 books in the series. Good as audio books as well.

At times I couldn't put it down for hours. Sometimes I read 2 hours a night.

(Warning! Spoilers!)
I really liked this book. It was very exciting and intriguing. Dash, his family, other scientists, and the Sjoberg family (tourists) are living on the Moon. Until suddenly, a top lunar scientist, Dr. Holtz, walks out onto the moon alone, with his space suit on wrong. After recently over hearing him in the bathroom talking to someone about a great discovery. Dash thinks it wasn't an accident, as in murder. But everyone thinks the old Doctor was going crazy, and this was a suicide. Dash soon finds two friends to help. Zan Perfonic and Kira Howard. My favourite part was when Dash and Kira were on the moon, also when Dash figures out Zan's secret. Zan was an alien, she was Dr. Hotlz's great discovery. He was the one talking to Zan in the bathroom. This book is not just for people who like space, if you like mystery, or adventure, this is the book for you!!
